Here they are in English translation:

Dear Mother, since the time I left for Libya with patient steps
I arrived but I have been feeling aimless
I search for the money I need by any means necessary
But it refuses to accumulate

The refrain "Ahimana"; means "Oh my soul";

The song is about migrant Tuareg workers trying to make a living in Libya and failing. The killing of Muammar Qaddafi wasn't just a disaster for the country of Libya -- it meant that workers from all over northern Africa (Mali, Sudan, etc.) who came to find work there suddenly lost their jobs.
